The density of females ofPalmistichus elaeisis Delvare and LaSalle (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) affects their reproductive performance on pupae of Bombyx mori
One of the most investigated species is Bombyx mori
since it has become a model organism for lepidopteran studies.

In the case of Bombyx mori
(L.), the naturally occurring (10R,11S)-(+)-JH I was highly bioactive while its opposite enantiomer was inactive, (9) Recent LC-MS analysis proved JH I to be the major JH in hemolymph of the silkworm.
The cocoons of the silkworm (Bombyx mori
) were provided by the Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the Technological University of Pereira; the chitosan (QS) was provided by Sigma-Aldrich.
